UN Secretary General António Guterres mentioned Armenia in his address to the General Assembly today.
Addressing the 73rd session of the General Assembly, the Secretary General refereed to a number of challenges facing the world, but also spoke of “winds of hope.”
“Despite the chaos and confusion in our world, I see winds of hope blowing around the globe,” Mr. Guterres said.
“Armenia’s young people were at the heart of that country’s peaceful political transition earlier this year – showing the potential of youth to use their voice to advance democracy,” he stated.
In a Facebook Q&A session earlier this week the Secretary General described the peaceful transition of power in Armenia as a “fantastic example.”
The UN Secretary General met with Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan Monday.
